Thing # 5
I always thought of flicker being used to view friends photos they have posted. I never thought it would be useful in the classroom or at school. I ended up spending more than an hour just looking at all the photos. Some photos are very impressive.
I found this image a lot. I really liked it because I love books and what a great way to show it.
I wish I would have know how to use this tool earlier for school. The other day, my students were making a brochure about a business they would have to earn money. Some students had a hard time finding pictures to add to their brochure. Flicker would be a great website for them to go to although I think it might be too complicated for a third grader. (saving the picture to their file would be to hard. Getting them to complete the brochure was hard enough) Here is an example of a picture they might have added to their brochure.
